You know the curse “May you live in interesting times”?
I’m living them right now and while many elements in my life are going swimmingly (my classes have started fantastically well, the family’s busy and healthy, I’m making progress in writing as well as editing), the ominous shadow of those “interesting times” looms overhead. It dogs my footsteps when I’m out walking the dogs. It sits on my shoulder and distracts me from pleasant family time. It follows me into my dreams. I can’t get past the concern to blog about anything else and I certainly can’t blog about this!
Soon I’ll have some information that might help put these worries into perspective. More likely, it’ll simply lay out the parameters for a scary next few months. Hopefully, I’ll be able to blog about the rest of my life once I’ve digested the news.
